Webinar: Integrating research evidence on gender-energy nexus to achieve just and equitable outcomes in the African / European energy transition efforts

To maximise the contribution of Horizon Europe projects to create just, equitable and socially acceptable transition to carbon-neutrality for all, the EU LEAP-RE (Long-Term Joint European Union - African Union Research and Innovation Partnership on Renewable Energy) and the gEneSys (Transforming Gendered Interrelations of Power and Inequalities in Transition Pathways to Sustainable Energy Systems) projects hosted a joint webinar on 3rd June 2024 at 10:30 – 12:00 CEST. The webinar used the format of roundtable discussion with speakers from the two projects sharing lessons from the gEneSys research and LEAP-RE implementation projects on the opportunities to incorporate gender - and social-equality benefits into energy transition goals and pathways.

Panel speakers:

  • Marine Cornelis: executive director and founder of Next Energy Consumer, member of LEAP-RE on the AU/EU energy ecosystem
  • Elli Stepanovic: Senior project manager of The Austrian Research Promotion Agency, representing the role of funder and supporting LEAP-RE partnership design
  • Isabella Nardini: Manager of International Affairs, Fraunhofer IEG, involved in LEAP-RE activities on geothermal and capacity-building
